Description

Attractive spikes of pink-red flowers show-up well against large, deeply-veined vivid green leaves on strong stems, and are followed by glossy black berries in the Autumn (these are not edible). A rapid-growing plant, it prefers full sun and moist soil but will tolerate some shade.

Sowing Advice

For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
